1st Day of School

Well my 2 boys are off to school again! (1st grade & 3rd grade). It’s always fun taking the kids to their first day of school. I couldn’t get these guys to stay still for a picture together though! They were too excited to get to their friends. Next year I’ll plan that part a little better haha. Anyhow, it’s exciting times at Stanly Jones Elementary and a good day to reflect on another summers past. 🙂

Best Photographer Finalist

So last month I got an email that said (among other things) “You were recommended for the Calgary Event Awards as an amazing event photographer”, I’ll leave out all the other boring stuff, but that line pretty much says it all. Anything like that is always nice to hear, so with that email I tossed my hat in the ring. Then a week or so later I got another email that read “Calgary Event Awards 2017 – Finalists” and then “Congratulations!” blah, blah, blah. Nice! I guess some other people kinda like what I do too. So as it turns out I’m up for Best Photographer and it’s between two other photographers and myself. The awards are on March 2nd, so I’ll be sure and let you guys know if I win or not. 🙂

Our Cancun Trip

rob-moses-exif-data-sony-a7ii-24-70mmSo as you may already know my family and I took a trip to Cancun Mexico recently. As you can imagine I took a lot of pictures. I will be sharing some of the Mexico pictures on here over the next little while, but I though I’d drop a bunch at once right now to give you an idea of how the trip looked. It was warm, fun and I’m looking forward to the next one!

Off in Cancun

If you follow me on Instagram (@RobMoses) then you probably already know I was hanging out in Cancun Mexico over the last week or so. If you don’t follow me on IG, Hello! sorry for the disappearance! 😉 haha. Anyhow, my family and I took a little time off and did some serious relaxing by the beach. I shot a few photos while I was down there and actually made couple video’s too. Here is one of my favourite sunset shots from the trip and the videos. I’ll get a proper post together in the next couple days.

Tokie The Cat

Sony a7ii & 55mm 1.8

Sony a7ii & 55mm 1.8

This lovely little creature is my wife’s parents family cat. Her name is Tokie and the shenanigans she has caused over the years has been that of legend. To keep things as brief as possible I will tell you just one Tokie Tale.

Last summer while visiting, I was letting Tokie inside before I went to bed. I open the front door and call for her. Sure enough like a good cat she comes prancing up to the door. As Tokie is nonchalantly walking by, I kind of notice something by her face. I close the door and scurry over to her as she’s walking down the stairs. When I stop her to get a better look I see a scene that looks straight out of a cartoon. There it is, a little tail wiggling around!!! “TOKIE!” I got her trapped half way down the staircase at a corner turn and lunge forward to grab her. In true cartoon style she spits the little mouse out! LOL The next thing I know I am franticly shoeing away a cat and trying to save a mouse. The mouse lays on the floor for 2 or 3 seconds as Tokie makes a run for it, then BOING! The mouse is back up on all fours and dashing from one way to the next. As I try and keep him in the corner I call for back up (waking up more than a few people I’m sure). Once the calvary arrives we get the mouse in tupperware container and back out the front door to fight another day. That mouse had one hell of a story to tell and just by the fur of his neck he had the chance to tell it. 🙂

Tokie the cat is a wild one to say the least, but I wouldn’t (and neither would she) have it any other way!

A Shot with Joshua

exif-data-rob-moses-canon-eos-6d-70-200mm-f4-isIt’s not often I get to have a picture with my son Joshua. You would think I have tons, but unfortunately I don’t! I have decided that is all going to change and I am going to make more of an effort to get in pictures with my children. They grow so fast and it seems like I barely have any pictures of me with them. Here’s to a good start. 🙂

Double Slide

Minolta 50mm 1.4

I was down at the park with some friends and my family on Friday evening when I took these. My sons were having quite the time on the slide and decided doubling up on the slide might be a fun time. Looks like they were right. 😉

Boys 1st Day of School

rob-moses-exif-data-sony-a850-minolta-50mm-1-4Another school year has started for my boys! This is Cameron’s (black sweater) first year at Stanley Jones Elementary. Cam has been looking forward to joining his brother Joshua, who has started the 2nd grade today. I love taking the boys to school on their first day, but this day was extra special since it is Cam’s first day of elementary. Seeing them both off together was really fun and I am looking forward to many more fun days to come.

Vacation in Mexico

I just spent a week in Mexico with my family. My wife and two children arrived in Cancun a day before the rest of the family arrived. So we spend a night in a hotel in what seemed to be a little more local (less touristy) part of the city. The next day when other people started arriving we headed to our restort about and hour south of Cancun at a place I believe was called Puerto Aventura.

The crew consisted of My family, my wife’s parents, my 2 sister in-laws and their boyfriends. Everyone had fun and there is just to many stories to write here. This post is just a bunch of pictures from my phone or GoPro (except for the funny family pic). I will be posting proper photos over the next few weeks.

Happy Christmas

exif data rob moses canon 6d 50mm 1.4That’s what it’s all about right here! Seeing these boys so happy on Christmas morning makes the lead up to the date all worthwhile. Toy research, long lines and half hour parking lot escapes all fade pretty fast when watching these boys experience the magic of Christmas. I can’t wait till next year already! ;).

Joshua’s 1st Saints Game

rob moses exif data Canon 50D 70-200mm 2.8 isMy son Joshua (#18) is playing “Timbits” hockey this year. The team he plays for is called the Saints and they had their first real game on Saturday. Joshua had a really great game and scored 7 goals for his team! What a guy, I couldn’t have been more proud of him :). I didn’t get a shot of the crowed, as they were up and behind me and I only brought my 70-200mm. I can tell you for sure though, the crowd was fired up and really into the game. It was a super fun atmosphere.

Usually I shoot hockey pictures with my 5D mark iii, but this time I decided to bring a crop sensor camera (Canon 50D) for the extra reach. I had never been to this area before and I wasn’t sure where I was going be shooting from, so I figured I’d better have that extra reach incase I was going to be far off. The 50D’s auto focus isn’t exactly renowned and the same could be said for the high ISO capabilities. The pictures turned out ok, but the noise turned out to be more of an issue than I had anticipated. Ah well, live and learn! I’ll be shooting the next game with the 5D for sure.

Camera: Sony NEX-7 & 55mm 1.8 Zeiss ~ Settings: f/4 – 1/500th – ISO 100

I was out at a park the other day with my 2 little buddies and my 6 year old son Joshua shot this photo of his bother and me walking :). I did the edit, but a good shot for the little guy!

Joshua & I

Camera: Canon 5D & 24-70L @ 64mm ~ Settings: f/2.8 – 1/160th – ISO 100

This picture is an insane 3 years old. I can’t even believe that. Time is just FLYING! This is one of my favourite pictures of my son Joshua and I and I never posted it here. I had the camera set up on a tripod at the end of the bridge and had it set on a 10 second timer. The bridge we are on was destroyed in during the 2013 flood. I’m not sure if they got a new bridge up there yet or not, I’ll take a look next time I’m in that neighbourhood.
